I chose baggage as there are many more L words than just luggage. So here it is...
I have a weird paranoia (see series title!) about the size and amount of my baggage. I don't like to take too much or to have it look like I am taking too much. It is actually quite irrational,but I suppose we all have our moments, and this is the oddest of my hangups.
I also like to make sure that I pack enough! which really doesn't help with my desire to pack light. At home, I am rarely a repeat wearer, I do a lot of washing because of this. Its not even the case that the clothes are dirty and warrant not being worn again.
So packing for a week away causes me no end of issues, I pick what I would ideally like, then dismiss all the items that I think are extras, and then get a second, third and sometimes fourth opinion!
Inevitably, on holiday, I have items that I never need (usually footwear) and items that I have forgotten (usually a hair brush or tooth brush or any kind of brush)...
My advice is to only pack that you can carry/pull/push comfortably. It does depend on the kind of holiday that you like to go on, if lying on a beach is relaxation for you, or staying cosied up in a country cottage then you can take as much as you like. If like me, you like to be constantly on the move, then pack as little as you can.
What are your packing rules?
